I have two tables which has identical table definition, one table has a few addtional records.  I need to see those additional records.  The "left join" statement doesn't work in Oracle, and putting (+) in condition column doesn't return the right result for me neither.  They have quite a few columns as well, so if there is a way I don't need to type all the columns name in will be even better.

e.g.
TableA
-------------------
col1   col2   col3
-------------------
 1       11       A
 2       11       B
 3       12       C
 
TableB
-------------------
col1   col2   col3
-------------------
 1       11       A
 2       11       B
 3       12       C
 4       12       D

The results should gives me TableB the last record.  Please help.  Thanks.

so, you only want

4   12   D  to be returned?

if so, try this...

select * from tableB
minus
select * from tableA
